Macbeth - Lochdubh's one-man police force - is in a foul mood. He's lost his promotion and his fiancée, and, instead of solitude, his vacation at "Friendly House" yields a freshly murdered corpse and an inn full of suspects who each longed to commit the crime. Can Macbeth find the culprit, or will justice prove elusive even for the redoubtable Scot?
Davina Porter's narration enlivens Beaton's rich storytelling and makes her generous splashes of local color even more vibrant. Death of a Nag rings with originality and will leave you guessing right up to the cunningly clever final twist.
Hamish sounds like he’s from India! What happened to the usual narrator? Truly truly awful
This particular one seemed less funny overall and dragged a bit for me. However, it did wind up well, with good twists in the plot. I will certainly continue the series in any case, after a short break.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, easy listening, charming characters and a good escape.
Would you be willing to try another book from M. C. Beaton? Why or why not?
Always, not complex but a fun read.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Davina Porter has improved her Scots dialect immensely from the earlier books.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
No, but I might watch on television as a series.
